Student Led Conference on ‘Social Media for GenNext’ on February 13-14, 2015


SNDT Women’s University, Mumbai organized two days Student Led Conference on ‘Social Media for GenNext’ on February 13-14, 2015 from 10.00 am to 5 p.m. at Patkar Hall, Churchgate, Mumbai.


In the digital age of contemporary society, the importance and role of Social Media is increasing in a phenomenal manner. Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have become a part of daily discussions and activities. A conference on Social Media will offer an opportunity to students-participants to the debates surrounding media technology, society and lifelong learning. Reaching out to the elderly will become all the more possible with greater awareness of the power of Social Media and acceptance of these pathways by people of all ages. Tools of Social Media can work also as spokespersons to ensure safety of women and can cut across silences bred by gender constraints. In the globalised era of 21st century, the traditional barriers of ‘national’ culture are breaking to give way to a new ‘global culture’ that has influences of cultures that are much beyond the narrow territorial boundaries of nation states. The conference thus explored some of these areas and enthusiastic participation of students was witnessed from the beginning till the end of the conference.
